I've just tweaked a bat profile today,(suns out in Oxfordshire and being a true northerner, had to get my shorts on and get out in it)so thought I'd try a bit with the finishing, as Tom criticised my poor finishing at the last Southern net.
Using the random orbital sander gradually going up the grades, means it's easy to get a pretty decent finish, using 240 last.
Then I finished off with 400 then 600 wet an dry,(I'm an engineer, so I have this handy).
Then finished off with a bit of wax
It's easy to get a bit ocd about finishing(Tom)😀but it is very satisfying to see a bat that you've shaped and finished yourself
